Inquilab (Revolution) has been the battle-cry of India’s most notable revolutionaries as they fought against the forces of British imperialism, religious oppression, state-sponsored pogroms, and continue economic and class struggles. Inquilab has, and always will be the motto of all Sikhs and as we carry on into the 21st century, let us mobilize our voices in solidarity with all oppressed peoples, let us bring the voice of Inquilab back to our community, and let us exhaust all means to end oppression throughout the world.
Inquilab will be a unique way of addressing human rights issues all over the world. Using various artistic forms of expression, including hip hop, spoken word poetry and art, artists will be presenting human rights issues from various perspectives to bring local awareness about human rights issues and move forward to create positive global change. In addition to the concert, various communities will attend and present issues their communities are specifically facing.
Look forward to a night of awareness and community.
